10 Tips to surprise her this Valentine's Day

Some are cliche ideas, some innovative. But your beloved would definitely be impressed if you surprise her using any of these tips:
  1. Send her a bouquet at her office or at midnight. Flowers always work!
  2. Facebook status update - Write something to show how much you love her. Keep the status intact at least for the entire day ;)
  3. YouTube - Upload a video declaring your undying love for her.
  4. Cook for her... and cook good.
  5. Recreate your first proposal / date scene. If it hasn't happened yet -ask her out now!
  6. The evergreen hand written love letter never fails.
  7. Send her romantic text messages at random intervals... but not every 5 mins ;)
  8. If you stay together, nothing's better than a candlelit room... of course, I mean aromatic ones!
  9. Make one of her wishes come true.
  10. Even if you really think so, do not tell her how you hate Valentine's Day if she really likes the day.

College students and Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is more like a Valentine's Week now. With all the 'days' - rose day, chocolate day, teddy day, kiss day and what not... colleges are wearing the colour of romance now.

All that the girls are talking about is guys. All that they are wondering is whether someone would ask them out this Valentine's. And yes, they are all expecting lots of gifts and roses too.

No wonder gift shops are abuzz with students (mostly guys) and ATMs are seeing a rise in footfalls!  Now no guy wants to hear a NO just because he appears to be kanjoos, right?

Check out this interesting article  written by a student of Mumbai's HR College and know how:

  • A guy's fate can be figured out 
  • Roses become the most expensive gift

Are red roses over-rated?

There's something about the colour red in February. Especially red roses. Some might say red roses during Valentine's are over-rated. Well, who cares! There's definitely some magic they create. Present a lovely red roses bouquet (or even a single red rose for that matter) to your sweetheart and see the glow on her face... nothing can beat it!

Of course, one thing can - presenting red roses on any random day, when there's no special occasion. But tell me, does this really happen?

So Mrinal surprised me with this beautiful bouquet last Valentine's. It was all the more special since, unlike me, Mrinal doesn't believe in bouquets! The only time when he brought me some flowers before last Valentine's was on our first wedding anniversary... obviously, it was a great surprise.

So whatever people talk about 'marketing gimmicks', doesn't 14th February (that doesn't actually mark your birthday / anniversary) make one more day of your year truly special?

And if you don't want to fall prey to the so-called advertising tricks and get her roses on this day (for whatever reasons), do surprise her a week in advance. Now that she will expect a bigger and better bouquet on the V-Day is another thing ;)
